BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Mark your calendars for the fifth annual Berkeley Heights Street Fair taking place on Sunday, June 25th. Over 100 artists and commercial businesses will have displays and activities along Springfield Avenue between Snyder and Plainfield Avenues from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Dr. Patrick Smith, Chairman of the Street Fair and the Vice Chair of the Suburban Chamber of Commerce, invites residents to enjoy the day in beautiful downtown Berkeley Heights. Dr. Smith said, “We promise this year's Berkeley Heights Street Fair will have something for everyone. 

We are really proud that together with the Township of Berkeley Heights we can bring this family friendly Celebration to our downtown. Berkeley Heights is such a great family town, so our partnership with the upscale production company 'This is it Productions', who produces other local street fairs, has helped us put together; an incredible street marketplace, a variety of delicious food delights, a fantastic centrally located Main Stage with nonstop local live entertainment, café style tables and chairs to enjoy all the festivities, new 'Touch a Truck' area and an expanded 'Kids zone' featuring rides and games, plus much more. The best part is, admission to the Berkeley Heights Street Fair, a summer Celebration, is Free!

New this year will be a tented beer and wine garden in the parking lot of Sadal Wines directly across from the stage.  Proceeds will benefit the Chamber of Commerce Scholarship to a Governor Livingston High School Student and our Vest A Cop program. In light of a recent local tragedy, the Chamber Foundation wants to help a local business family, so we will have a collection/Tip jar in the Beer/Wine Garden with all proceeds benefitting the Guidetti Family Gofundme.  

There will also be free drawings, and much more, so come join your neighbors. We are expecting 20,000 to attend, and we are ready to start the summer with a day filled with some good old fashion fun at the 2017 Berkeley Heights Street Fair".
